Recruiters need to remember the one thing they offer candidates, is HOPE. I recently participated and presented at the Scioto Ridge Job Networking Group, Tuesday Tune-up. I was there to help Job Seekers search for work using social networking, using internet tools and to give tips and suggestions. One of the main points and discussions was on, how to work with a Recruiter. I had many conversations, with different individuals – all looking for one thing – HOPE.
The next candidate you talk to – even if they are not a fit for your opening or company – Remember you are still able to give them the HOPE they need to help find work, in this economy. Maybe it is a hint on how to improve their resume, an interview tip, an internet site that may help their search, a networking group – or any bit of information that may help them. Take a minute with each candidate this week, this month or longer and give them HOPE.
